My favorite books tend to be "the books I read most recently". I'm
currently reading a biography of Woodrow Wilson and a book about
vampires in ancient Rome.
I prefer non-fiction, but I can dig fiction if it's science fiction
(love Robert A. Heinlein's stuff) or has a good amount of humor (I
like Terry Pratchett a lot). Also, George R.R. Martin is God, or is
so close to it it doesn't matter.
The last 3 movies I saw in a theatre were "The Lego Movie", "Lone
Survivor", and "American Hustle". Loved all three, for very
different reasons. I'd say my favorite movie is either "Pulp
Fiction" or "The Empire Strikes Back".
I love music and rock history. The only two genres I'd say I
categorically hate are Mexican country (yes, it is a distinct
genre) and techno. My 3 favorite bands are the Rolling Stones, Iggy
Pop, and Talking Heads. I also like a lot of bands from the Oughts,
like Franz Ferdinand, the Strokes, the White Stripes, the Black
Keys, the Fratellis, Miike Snow...I like a lot of music.
Spotify is the best.
